CogX is an extraordinary annual event. This year, 600 speakers and 16,000 delegates converged on Kings Cross, London, to share thinking, network and debate issues on a broad range of exciting development and challenging issues on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and emerging technologies.

  • The impact AI is having on industry, government and society.
  • What is catching the interest of investors and how are economists mapping the AI options?
  • How does Web 3.0 and BlockChain technologies safeguard individual privacy while protecting the next generation of businesses?
  • How is the cutting edge of software, hardware and wetware changing the way we work?
  • The moral compass while building new systems. Where does ethics come into the equation?
  • What progress is being made by researchers and universities across the world? Discussions were led by the Alan Turing Institute.
  • How are the tech entrepreneurs making it happen?
  • The future of work and education
  • How medical science and healthcare is gaining from AI.
  • In what way can AI protect the environment and the many species with whom we share our planet?

What was exciting for me was the opportunity to chair two sessions with some of the global leaders and geniuses in their field.
